I'm looking for the best quality prints at a reasonable price. Been using Clark Color labs for several years, and they're good, prices are okay if you pre-pay for prints. They do not have new sizes such as 6x8 or 10x13.

I read that Ofoto/Kodak Picture Gallery are the best prints, Ritz Cameras gets good ratings as well. Is anyone using WinkFlash? They have good review and some great features such as 99 cent/flat rate shipping, ability to add notes to back of photos, ability to download hi-res versions of your photos at any time for free, unlimited online storage, very good pricing without pre-payment (their prices on prints above 4x6 in size is considerably better than Clark's).

Curious to hear others thoughts. Thanks. -David

I don't know about reasonable price. There are times when you get what you pay for!!! I have long been a customer of Holland Photo and they do extremely professional work. Then again keep in mind my background is in medium and large format transparencies. I'm still reading Photoshop for morons.:? Just my two cents worth.

I'm sure Holland does great work...but that is way too expensive for me. I'm not unhappy with Clark...just exploring other options.

My friend recently showed me a pic he took in Scotland with his Rebel XT. He enlarged to 10 x 16? Or something like that..at any rate, he used Ritz Camera, quality paper, nice ink.

Tried mpix, used it a few times, great quality prints, fast service and delivery, competitive prices. No need to try another place.

I noticed a review of ten online photo labs in one of the photo mags at Hastings. Both Mpix and Kodak Photo Gallery scored well. Sorry, I can't remember more than that.

Just go to SAM's club if I have a bunch of photographs that need printing.. The one here in Daytona does excellent printing and the cost is very inexpensive. I just do not trust the US:Mail for anything important like someones wedding photographs.

I get My photo's all cropped,sized and color corrected at home on My computer using Photoshop and then put the ones I want to print out on a DVD ora CD disc and just take the disc to Sam's Club to have printed. They do a very good job of printing and use regular Fugi photo paper.

They can print a 5 X 7 way cheaper then it costs me on my 1280 Epson. The larger prints like a 11 X 14 I domyself at home. 24 X 30 size goes to a professional print shop in Daytona. I can print up to 13 X 19 at home.

I have used Ofoto a couple of times to run calendars using my pictures and have been happy with their work. I also recently used Poster-size-it for a couple of 16x20'x and was very happy with their service and results! I recieved my order the same week and very reasonable.

Good luck!

http://www.winkflash.com has outstanding prices and good quality prints. They use FujiFilm Frontier printers and can do up to 60-something inch prints if you want.

4x6 are 12 cents, 8x10 are $2, 10x15 are about $3.80, 24x36 are $20 to give you an idea of the costs. I like using them. Prints are made with chemicals in a similar manor to how film prints are made even though digital files are being used.
